Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Peace River Skirmisher Model
The Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter to make plastic miniatures for the Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopia faction core models is now set for a mid-September launch. This weeks preview is the Skirmisher model for the Peace River faction, checkout the image below with all the detail improvements and information. We changed the way the head and torso parts will be sprued and placed in the plastic injection molds to get better details on the front head sensors. Plus made the arms more poseable and the legs now have ball and socket connections to the hips for wider leg poses if the player wishes. Plus the butt plate and front and side hip armor plates are now separate parts which are glued on after the legs are posed.
As with our previous preview we are including a link to a new 3d PDF of the Skirmisher which the Solidworks 3d software allows us to make now, click here to download the 3d PDF (4.3MB) file. Once on the download page, you will need to right click on your mouse for the option to save the file or you may have a download button at the top right of the screen to click, as 3d PDFs won't open automatically online. And you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for PC or MAC, here is a link to its download/install page. Once you have the filed downloaded to your computer and open it using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. See our previous update with the Warrior IV preview at the following link for a fast preview of how the 3d PDF works.
We want your feedback on the Skirmisher model, leave you comments below. We'll continue tweaking the parts up until the Kickstarter launch to get the best new plastic models possible. Upcoming previews will include the Warrior, Crusader IV, and Argos models for the Peace River Faction and then models for NuCoal and Utopia Factions.
